Touted as “New York’s premier exhibition of designers of contemporary furnishings or home accessories,” BKLYN DESIGNS is showing off the best in home-grown artists and craftsmen. I went to the load-in yesterday and filmed local artists from the neighborhood, and also got a sneak peek of what’s to come this weekend.
In the following video you’ll see nature-inspired children’s furniture from April Hannah; “Light Brite for adults” with Robert Stratton and madbutter.com; beautiful home accessories from Aviva Stanoff; foxy furniture from Eric Manigian; and metro-chic designs from 718 Made In Brooklyn.
All the exhibitors live in Brooklyn, and all are unique, diverse and eclectic. It’s worth the trip if you’re looking for furniture, or just want to be inspired. BKLYN DESIGNS runs all weekend at St. Ann’s Warehouse—for more information visit bklyndesigns.com.
